A chunk of the Vedas, astrology is a subject based on astronomy. Our sages were capable of seeing the important planets (Graha) & constellations (nakshatras) and their effect on the living beings & their surroundings and based on their readings, experiences and prolonged study they inculcated the science of astrology. There are several related effects of the combination of these nakshatras, Rashis, and planets in the various aspects of our lives. The sages, with the help of their foresight, did excellent work just to help mankind and gain maximum benefit out of life. They also devised some techniques and remedies to save humankind from the negative and ill effects of the planetary movements.
We all are lucky, as we have the chance to know our lives with the help of astrology. Horoscope helps us know our self in depth. At times, one does not know his hidden talents and astrology helps us dig into them more instantly. For instance, if we know that our throat is very soft & good for singing and if we have interest in this field we will be very successful. An individual can work hard and still fail in a given field. Working hard doesn’t mean success. One should know the qualities and abilities of his/her self. Person should try to find the strengths and hidden qualities and pursue them to gain success in life.
Astrology doesn’t stop you to do karma but it helps you know right karma. If we know which karma is good for us, we can practice that karma and get success easily. Astrology helps us find the internal facts and gives the best shape to our lives. A person may be studying engineering however lack of interest may not make him a successful engineer. So personal interest and domain knowledge go hand in hand, one is useless without the other. Also one must understand, astrology guides a far sighed path but to have the maximum gain, one must work hard and be firm on the given path.
